Manège de Sury
The Manège de Sury is a former convent-turned-school; a location now home to a “micro-city” or ideal community. In 2016, the restored and repurposed building complex became an incubator for innovative companies, a model urban island for the creation of future technology marked by the free circulation of information.
Within the manège.mons structure, the Maison Folie designs its action on the basis of an open-minded vision of artistic, cultural, and associative practices.
Although the Maison Folie stands out as an extraordinary setting due to its spaces - which are constantly changing - with their “unfinished” look, and its artistic and cultural offerings, it is also a laboratory, a place of multidisciplinary cultural and artistic experimentation, where new links between art and society are developed. In addition, the public does not only come to see shows or exhibitions, but are also invited to participate in the creative process, and in artistic moments that break the traditional mould.
Create or expand your own business.. some dream about it, but others actually do it! However, actually accomplishing an idea isn’t so simple. Hence, since 2005 the Progress agency Maison du Design has been offering you advice and support in the various key phases of your start-up project or business development.
Maison du Design is a professional team offering support based on a creative methodology that maximises the chances of your project’s success.
Musée François Duesberg
The chapel of the Couvent des Ursulines becomes the home of Mons’ municipal heritage, showcasing the works of art and activities around them.
Right at the heart of the Pôle Muséal, Artothèque is a venue dedicated to preserving, researching, restoring and studying our heritage, bringing together all the municipality’s collections in one place! As well as its commitment to conservation, the Artothèque plays also a significant role in the promotion of Mons’ heritage by making it accessible virtually thanks to the virtual Artothèque, as well as by revealing the behind-the-scenes work that goes on in museums.
